NOW Solutions Celebrates The Success of Their Third International Users Conference -- "Universal Possibilities!"

Fort Worth, TX, December 12, 2005 -- NOW Solutions, Inc. ("NOW Solutions"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Vertical Computer Systems, Inc. (VCSY.PK), celebrated their third international user conference, November 8-11, 2005, in Orlando, Florida.

NOW Solutions Users Conference 2005 was a success for NOW Solutions and their user community. Delegates throughout North America retreated from daily workplace demands to strategize future product direction, learn new technology and functionality, and preview the latest vendor solutions. Seven generous corporate sponsors and partners were showcased at this year's conference.

The conference program featured over 35 general and educational sessions, as well as discussion forums dealing with a variety of topics associated to human resources, payroll, and information technology. The conference was generously packed with three days of emPath® education, professional development, quality user experiences, and some down time to network and enjoy the magic of Orlando. At the conclusion of the conference, delegates returned home with new ideas and an expanded network of contacts sharing one common theme -- "Universal Possibilities!"

Evident at this year's Users Conference was the continued support of NOW Solutions' User community. Feedback from the delegates was overwhelmingly positive. According to one delegate, "this conference was exceptionally well organized. I could tell that the planning team listened and implemented suggestions from last year's feedback. It's incredible how much the NOW staff is concerned with what their customers have to say. You don't get that type of support from many products." Another delegate remarked: "I enjoyed this conference very much and learned a great deal. I have only been using emPath® for 8 months and have a better understanding of the power this product has for our Payroll/ Benefits department".

Marianne Franklin, President and CEO of NOW Solutions praised the efforts of this year's Conference Planning Committee and the support of all the delegates, staff, speakers and sponsors. Ms. Franklin observed: "We're excited and proud to continue making an investment into the annual users conference, because this event is all about serving our valued customers to the best of NOW's ability."
